Chimera. Printed matter for Type and Media final project presentation.

Chimera is a project I did during the last half a year at Type and Media course in the Hague. It is a reversed contrast typeface with a dynamic character which comes from an angle (45°) of the broad-nib tool. Type family consists of five styles completely drawn from scratch. Intended specially for display use, the typeface includes two low-contrast text companions in addition. The text styles are an extension to the display ones. They keep the same concept, but are adjusted to be able to perform in smaller sizes. Although all the styles in the family are based on the same concept and share certain characteristics, they are not meant to be used together. Each one works individually, bringing its own unique style. However text styles can work as companions to any of the display ones.

On Type and Media 2013 website you can find a short specimen and a briefly described process of development.
